Fingerprint Cards AB (publ) communicates view on long-term development of markets for biometrics and the company’s competitive position24.9.2020 14:30:00 CEST | Press release
Over 80 percent of all smartphones sold currently have some form of biometric sensor. The technology is generally accepted and appreciated by users throughout the world, who use their biometric data to unlock devices, make payments and gain access to apps. There is still growth potential in the mobile industry, in part by increasing the attach rate of biometric sensors for smartphones and in part through new product innovations. However, Fingerprints expects the growth in biometrics to primarily occur in new areas. While the adoption of biometrics in areas outside of smartphones has been sporadic over the past few years, there are now clear indications that biometrics is on the verge of entering into several new consumer mass markets.

Företagsakuten förlängs till 31 december 2020 Regeringen har beslutat att förlänga Företagsakuten. Företagsakuten är ett kreditgarantiprogram som infördes för att dämpa de ekonomiska skadeverkningarna av coronakrisen. Utformningen av garantiprogrammet är densamma som tidigare och innebär att Riksgälden kan ställa ut kreditgarantier för utlåning till i första hand små och medelstora företag i Sverige som drabbats ekonomiskt av coronaviruset men som för övrigt är livskraftiga. Riksgälden ställer ut garantin till banker och kreditinstitut som i sin tur lånar ut till företagen. Företag kan nu ansöka om lån inom garantiprogrammet fram till den 31 december 2020 genom att vända sig till sin långivare/bank. En lista på anslutna banker och kreditinstitut finns på Riksgäldens webbsida. Staten garanterar upp till 70 procent av lånebeloppet. Fram till och med vecka 38 (18 september) hade 615 lån till ett värde av 2,2 miljarder kronor beviljats inom Företagsakuten. För mer information se Riksgälden
